4/10 Fair

Overpriced Old property. It’s not what it claims to be. Better places just round the corner for a better price. Staff wasn’t helpful. $ 30 charges for a second person even if the room is booked as a king room with declared 2 occupancies was a surprise. On the positive side Carrie from the reception was perticularly helpful in communicating with me about an item I had left behind.

4/10 Fair

Never again
The property is falling apart. Room flooded, towel rail fell off wall, windows in replacement room leak. To add insult to injury they charged me for the food that had been plated for 45 minutes whilst we relocated from the flooded room. The wine list is a work of fiction as only one bottle is in stock. The staff try hard but it´s a battle they can´t win. Avoid - I will never return.
